This is from my photography project. It is a street wall from the asian side of Istanbul. I tried to emphasize the texture of the walls and make them a part of the art on the wall.

These are the photos I took while I was wandering around in Istanbul in order to find material for my photography project.  Actually I was looking for street walls in different settlements. Suddenly these cute guys have surrounded me and wanted me to take photos of them. I didn’t make them pose for me, these are their own posturings.

They were so smart and friendly. I like the expression on the one’s face who is on the  rightmost side of the first photo.

VA 328 typology project

Our project in the course VA 328 is typology on photography. I have chosen the street walls as the subject matter, because I believe that walls on the street are good examples for an unofficial archive of the contmeporary events. Everyone is free to leave his/her message on the street walls, that’s why I can find marks from people with different lifestyles. They refer political messages, social problems in their marks.

These photos were taken in a small region by me, but I will broaden the region. I am trying to take photographs of the walls from each region of Istanbul.
